Amazing! Always love it there. Can not fault anything.
Wonderful as always. We love Rookie and will be back again.
Great service and outstanding food. Would highly recommend.
This is my favourite restaurant at the moment. Outstanding food and flavours with very professional service. The wine list is limites but very good and very reasonably priced for such a good restaurant. Can't wait to go back.
Food and service outstanding as usual. Our favourite restaurant in The Gong.
The food was delicious and innovative - we loved our meal. It is pricey but I did not leave feeling like I had a wonderful evening with fabulous food and great service.
i was recommended to try this restaurant as have heard so much good reviews on the food and service.
service is amazing and feed me banquet was absolutely delicious.
Dessert was mind blowing.
Just wanted to say thank you again for another amazing meal at rookie. We always receive exceptional service and rave about the food.
I'm always very pleased with Rookie's dining experience!
Service and food were very good. The oysters were fresh and the prawns for entree were probably the highlight, beautifully charred and just beautiful. We probably wouldn't order the miso butterscotch chocolate tart (dessert) again only because the flavours were too strong and didn't quite go very well together. Espresso Martini was a let down and not worth the price ($22). Overall a beautiful experience and would definitely recommend to dine in! :)
Going back for sure... went back home and spent 2 hours trying to decide the best dish... impossible to do
The food and service were very good, a little disappointed that the structure of the banquet menu had changed. Definitely recommend.
Otherwise outstanding food was great all enjoyed dinner
Excellent value for money, exquisite menu. Generous serves.
Delicious banquet courses, from which the fresh scallion flatbread & fermented chilli, kingfish sashimi and the wagyu beef stood out. Only the grilled prawns were a little nondescript. Great service, and the place was full and buzzing as it could be under COVID19 conditions. You can't hang around if you come early though - they want the table, pronto!
As always the Service, Food & Wine choice, wonderful .
Well done Rookie
Had the set menu midweek with my wife. We both enjoyed all the courses. Service was very good with a friendly & helpful waitperson. They have a good variety of gins and we had a very nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc with our dinner. Also, had dessert & coffee which was not part of the set menu and dessert also was delicious , Very nice place for a special dinner.
Always so great, we love this place the food and the service.
Amazing food and service. Best fine dining restaurant I have been to in Wollongong. Would recommend for a special event; birthday, anniversary etc.
Amazing food and service as always. Thanks for a lovely evening.
Our first fine dining experience in a long time and it didn't dissapoint. Attentive and highly experienced service, quiet and aesthetic atmosphere plus food thoughtfully portioned and bursting with flavour. A delightfully romantic and delicious evening. Thanks Rookie!
Love rookie, always a treat, great space and service, food.os excellent.
The best restaurant in the Illawarra! Delicious food!
Lovely dining experience. Food was spectacular and service was faultless.
I was given a gift voucher for my birthday so was unsure what to expect
Every course got better when I didnt think it could. The service was excellent, the wine we chose (of course it had to be on the menu in the first place) was excellent match to our dinner. We left feeling extremely happy and satisfied customers and we will definitely be returning.
We felt the food was over priced for what it was. I am vegetarian and while they had a vegetarian menu they couldn’t do a vegetarian set menu, they substituted one meal but most I could not eat.
Amazing food and great service, will be back soon!
Nicely priced tasting menu - servings are generous- so go hungry! Service felt a little rushed, the celebratory bottle of red we bought was not the year advertised on the menu nor were we offered the opportunity to taste before it was poured. However - a nice venue and good food. Would certainly go back for more.
Wonderful highly recommend, food great service is excellent.
I really enjoyed the Feed Me menu, my favourite dish by far was the dumplings. Ordered dessert to share. Very nice and enough for 2 if you’re not after a big dessert to yourself. Would go back but would need to be a special occasion due to the price.
We had the feast menu and loved everything. Service was also great.
The food was excellent and the service was good. The wine did seem a bit overpriced.
Excellent food, nouveau and innovative. Would recommend to anyone looking for a dining experience.
Food was delicious! Lived up to our expectations. Friendly staff and cozy setting.
Great ambience, impeccable service and ideal location. The food was a bit of a let down compared to previous visits. Nonetheless still in the top 3 in Wollongong. Highly recommended
Awesome food and fantastic service. Excellent overall and will definitely be back
Really gorgeous food, wine and service. We will definitely go back.
Fabulous. Well thought out. Everything was delightful
A great dinner experience. Food was amazing with great service.
Terrific fusion food with fresh ingredients used sensibly
Excellent vege menu too
Would recommend highly
